What’s Happening?

Are you a NASCAR fan looking to elevate your race-day viewing experience? Thankfully, there are plenty of second-screen viewing options for fans to keep tabs on everything going on during the races. Here are the best ones.

  • While the race broadcast will, hopefully, give fans all they want or need to know during a race, a second screen can often give fans some extra depth. They can hone in on a specific driver or race team and follow their specific race, almost like they are actively at the race track.
  • This will focus on fans watching the race from home. While there are plenty of options for fans to tune into these types of things at the race track, most fans consume NASCAR content at home, on TV.
  • Fans oftentimes will tune in to these second stream options. It allows them to consume NASCAR in an entirely different way.

NASCAR Race Center

This is the easiest second screen for any NASCAR fan to access. NASCAR Race Center is available on NASCAR.com along with the base NASCAR Mobile App. This offers all of the basic race information including the current running order, video highlights, race statistics, and the radio broadcast.

This is helpful to follow during the race, and it is great for fans who are on the go. However, there are more in-depth options for fans who want to upgrade.

NASCAR Scanner

If fans want to follow in-car radio during the race, NASCAR Scanner is the place to go. This is available to fans who purchase a Premium Plan ($4.99 Per Month OR $29.99 Per Year) on the NASCAR Mobile App. This gives fans access to all driver channels along with the radio broadcast and the NASCAR Officials channel.

It’s particularly handy for fans of a specific driver. While the regular broadcast will pick and choose which radio audio to use, this allows fans to listen to their specific driver’s communication during the race. This means fans are aware of how a driver’s car is feeling and what the upcoming pit strategy is.

NASCAR Drive

NASCAR Drive is essentially the video equivalent of NASCAR Scanner with a few enhancements. NASCAR Drive is available both on NASCAR Mobile and NASCAR.com/Drive. This allows fans to follow specific in-car cameras along with telemetry data, but, fans must have a NASCAR Scanner subscription to access in-car audio.

Regardless, this allows fans to know exactly where their favorite driver is on the race track at all times. While the base package is seemingly available for free, there are enhancements for those who have a Premium NASCAR Mobile account, including the ability to cast to their TV.

YouTube In-Car Camera Live Streams

NASCAR will also live-stream one in-car camera from each race on YouTube. Unfortunately, there is no in-car audio included with these live streams. It can be great for fans if their specific driver is the one highlighted though.

While there are other options out there, including NASCAR Drive, YouTube is easy for any fan to access. It can be great to have a specific in-car camera for your favorite driver, and the live stream chat can also allow fans to interact with others.

These are a few ways that NASCAR fans can enhance their NASCAR-watching experience. They all can be interesting for fans to keep an eye on throughout a race.
